INTL SIGNALING & COMMUNICATION

Prerequisites: Instructor's permission prior to registration.

This course will delve into how states infer what others are likely to do in the future and how they try to project desired images of how they will behave.  This involves both purposeful or intended communication, as in diplomacy, and the ways in which perceivers try to discern others' capabilities and intentions from attributes and behaviors that the senders cannot readily manipulate.  Substantive areas to be covered--or at least touched on--include how states try to open negotiations without appearing weak, how promises and threats can be orchestrated, and the use of peace feelers.
